Online Tech Clocks Another Record Year of High-Growth Success

Riding on the success of its private cloud product launch last year, Ann Arbor-based Online Tech Tuesday reproted a 33 percent in 2010 revenue over 2009 levels.

Enthusiastic about the state of the data center market, the company said it plans to expand its private cloud offering in 2011.

2010 was a year of progress and upgrades for Online Tech as they made significant investments in their data center infrastructure, customer portal, and product offerings. 2010 infrastructure investments included upgraded energy efficient cooling systems, increased backup power capacity, and adding Qwest network connectivity to the data centers to improve network resiliency.

Online Tech also completely redesigned and upgraded their customer portal in 2010. Called OTPortal, it provides its hosting clients greater visibility and control over every device in their data centers. OTPortal's feature-rich dashboard delivers self-service, on-demand access to server monitoring, management and 24x7 customer support.

"These investments in our business have put us in a great position to compete and thrive in 2011," said Online Tech CEO Yan Ness. "We intend to continue to reinvest in our data centers this year and expand our growing product line."

The company's growth in 2010 was in part due to their launch of its private cloud hosting product line. OT Private Cloud was released in late 2010. The secure private cloud meets PCI, SOX, and HIPAA compliance requirements that can't be met with public cloud hosting.

"The launch of OT Private Cloud has brought us business that we might not otherwise have seen," said Online Tech president and COO Mike Klein. "The power of virtualization combined with the reliability and security of the private cloud seems to be an unbeatable combination for mid-size businesses concerned about data security."

Online Tech expects to expand upon that success with additional cloud offerings to be announced later in the first quarter of 2011.

Online Tech offers managed dedicated servers, private cloud hosting, IT disaster recovery, and Michigan colocation.
